The retired lists have been posted. It is bittersweet as we say goodbye to some favorite items and at the same time look forward to new and exciting new stamp sets and accessories sure to be found in the new Stampin' Up! Catalog.
In this card, I have used Designer Series Paper from Sale-a-bration (just retired), Poppy Parade Card Stock & Ink, the Blossom Bouquet Triple Layer Punch and a Filigree Brad, which are all retiring at the end of May.
The sketch idea was from a past Mojo Monday. I didn't get a chance to get to it on time, but thought it was a fun quilt pattern. My grandmothers were both big quilters, so the "Memories" sentiment seemed the perfect touch to finish my card. To make the leaves, I used the Blossom Petals Builder Punch and scored a line down the center with the Simply Scored scoring tool. You gotta love the quality of Stampin' Up! card stock. It's so easy to shape with your fingers. The flower and leaves are curled to make more a 3-dimensional look.
